4 Simple Tips to Improve Your Writing Skills

Learning to write, and write well, can be especially beneficial to teenagers as they go through several different experiences

Good writing usually comes from the habit of reading widely and understanding and thinking keenly. Writing does not only involve expression of views and thought but it is beneficial to the writer in many ways too. It boosts creativity, decreases stress, improves communication skills and narrow down our thoughts and help us to connect with our emotions.

Here are some ways that can help you improve your writing skills.

Develop a love for reading

To begin with get enrolled in a library, a physical one. Explore the different kind of books that are available and see what attracts you more. Fiction, poetry, biographies, science-fiction novels and more, look for the one that you find attractive and readable.

Improve your vocabulary

When you come across a complex and difficult word, look out for its meaning. Try to know its synonyms, antonyms, pronunciation, usage and then try to use that word in your daily conversations as well.

Practise makes a man perfect

To practice writing, start writing a diary or maintaining a journal on a daily basis and record your thoughts and experiences. The more you write, the more your skills will improve. This will also give yolu the opportunity to be creative in whatever way you like.

Nurture creativity

Just as any other art, writing will help to inspire your creativity and encourage you to become better at it. You could also try the following:

There might be times when you don’t want to work any more on it and quit but always keep yourself motivated to possess more knowledge of the language and writing. Popular author Richard Bach once said,

“A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.”

Succeed in life with your Emotional Quotient

Emotional intelligence/quotient (EQ) is one of the strongest indicators of success in life

EQ is not only the ability to identify and manage your own emotions, but also the ability to recognize the emotions of others. Emotional intelligence can evolve over time, as long as you have the desire to increase it. It also involves your perception of others: when you understand how they feel, this allows you to manage relationships more effectively. Every person, challenge, or situation faced is a prime learning opportunity to test your EQ. It takes practice, but you can start reaping the benefits immediately.

How to push up your EQ:

Control your negative emotions: When you’re able to manage and reduce your negative emotions, you’re less likely to get overwhelmed. If someone is upsetting you, don’t jump to conclusions. Instead, allow yourself to look at the situation in a variety of ways. Try to look at things objectively so you don’t get riled up as easily. 

Be mindful of your vocabulary: Emotionally intelligent people tend to use more specific words that can help communicate deficiencies, and then they immediately work to address them.

Know your stressors: Take note of what stresses you out, and be proactive to have less of it in your life. If you know that checking your work email before bed will send you into a tailspin, leave it for the morning. 

Bounce back from adversity: Everyone encounters challenges. It’s how you react to these challenges that either sets you up for success or puts you on the meltdown mode. You already know that positive thinking will take you places.

Be Empathetic: Practice focusing on others and walking in their shoes, even if just for a moment. Empathetic statements do not excuse unacceptable behaviour, but they help remind you that everyone has their own issues.

Take criticism constructively: Instead of getting offended or defensive, high EQ people take a few moments to understand where the critique is coming from, how it is affecting others or their own performance and how they can constructively resolve any issues.

Today, Emotional Intelligence (EI or EQ) is considered to be even more important than IQ (intelligence quotient). We are emotional creatures who often make decisions and respond to stimuli based on our emotions. As a result, our ability to grow in EQ has an enormous impact in all of our relationships, how we make decisions, and identify opportunities. EQ is enormously important.
